For March 1st, we will be talking with Tabitha Gregory about her book Valdez Rises. On March 27, 1964, Alaska's biggest ever earthquake hit the town of Valdez, Alaska. This is the story of the quake and its aftermath. Amazingly, the town of Valdez was actually relocated and continues to provide its citizens with a place to live and work. Join us for Tabitha's presentation and a lively discussion.

The zoom link will be sent out to everyone on our book club and writers lists, but if you do not get emails from those lists, you may request that the link be sent to you by writing to Linda at auntiesbooks@gmail.com or lindathewriter@gmail.com.

See you soon!!!

On March 27, 1964, the largest earthquake ever to strike North America devastated Alaska’s coast. Valdez, a town of 500 people, lay at ground zero. Here, buildings crumbled, roads cracked open, and the entire waterfront collapsed into the ocean. Within days of the quake, officials decided they could not rebuild Valdez in situ—the site was unstable. Instead, the entire town would move.
